Malua Bay Fire Information Day 6th October


Ongoing community support for the Malua Bay Fire Brigade has enabled the Brigade to purchase and erect an electronic Fire Danger Rating Sign on George Bass Drive behind Surf Beach. The sign is linked live to the Rural Fire Service Head Office in Sydney and displays current bush fire ratings for the local area.


“The new sign is very timely” said Malua Bay Brigade Captain Ian Barnes. “We have had a particularly dry winter and there is a lot of dry fuel in bush areas which can potentially generate intense bush fires”. Mr Barnes is urging property owners to prepare for a potentially difficult fire season.

Residents are encouraged to become familiar with the sign and learn to interpret how the Fire Danger Rating should inform their plans. More details can be found at https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/fdr-and-tobans.

To further assist residents and property owners along the coast between Surf Beach and Tomakin, and inland to Dunns Creek Road, the Malua Bay Brigade is holding a fire information day on Saturday 6th October from 8am to midday. It will be held in conjunction with the Quota Club Markets on the Malua Bay beach reserve next to the surf club.

Brigade members will be available to answer questions and provide literature on Bush Fire Safety, how to prepare property, and how to prepare a personal Bush Fire Survival Plan.

Families in particular are welcome to closely inspect fire fighting vehicles and equipment which will be on display.
